So Alvaro Recoba, the Uruguayan who destroyed the Socceroos’ World Cup dream in 2001 is coming to Perth? That is the story doing the rounds but the truth is a little more circumspect.
A gentleman purporting to be the Uruguayan’s agent in Australia contacted the Perth Club and asked if they would be interested in signing him as a marque player. The club answered that they would be, but no fee or salary has been discussed as the agent has not called back the club with any figures. As Recoba is still under contract the move is an unlikely one.
